to our chief foreign correspondent, richard engel, in the studio. at one point the secretary just kind of waved her hand today to indicate the whole region of the middle east as something we should have our eyes on. as you know, all too well, it's a tinder box. what do you have your eyes on right now? >> in regards to this testimony, i think she was highlighting the problems in north africa. and it really goes down to weapons. when gadhafi was falling, i was there at the time, i had never seen so many weapons in my entire life. and they were just being taken from depots, they were being handed over to militant groups. and then they went all over the region. they went from country to country and they fell into the hands of militant groups. and this is no longer theoretical. seven americans have been killed, including an ambassador in the last four months. >> it was election night last night in israel. benjamin netanyahu re-elected but by a thin margin with less power. as you have been pointing out over and over, there they sit in the middle of a lot of this. >> they feel very isolated r
syria near damascus. richard engel, our chief foreign correspondent, here with us in the studio tonight. what's the significance of israel reaching in and popping a target like that. >> it's quite significant. and this is the first time israel has attacked anything in syria for five years. what we've been able to confirm, an israeli air strike took place and attacked a convoy, probably stationary, just north of damascus. it was packed with fairly sophisticated russian anti aircraft missiles. and that those missiles were on their way to lebanon. they were going to be handed over to hezbollah. hezbollah is very powerful in lebanon, israel's sworn enemy. israel did not want hezbollah to have these weapons. what does it mean? hezbollah and israel could be heading up for another round. it also means israel is willing to reach inside syria and stop weapons from leaking out, maybe even chemical weapons. >> an escalation in a dangerous neighborhood. richard engel, thank you, as always. >>> still ahead for us tonight, a dramatic turn of events for a man who was once a heartbeat from a presidency

-changing areas, here in egypt, libya and tunisia. we talked to richard engel last night and we discussed areas where the al-qaeda-linked areas are trying to take over. they are trying to topple the government there. the french went in this weekend, then the french, on monday, they were sending in even more troops. the u.s. had reportedly thought the french were going it alone. but on tuesday, a whole bunch of african countries said they, too, would send help. it was togo, ghana, and senegal, all sending troops. at the same time, they said they would let them use air space. today, it is now an attack, a major hostage situation involving civilians from a bunch of other countries, civilians including americans. it happened in a algeria, and americans and others were taken at a natural gas facility, bp. they were from ireland, canada, and france. the natural gas facility was here in a remote area of northeastern algeria, the group claiming responsibility says it was retaliation for them using air space in maly. he has reportedly struck out on his own now. according to the algerian government, the
, and if so, will they respond in tehran? richard engel is nbc's chief correspondent, and steve clemons is the editor-at-large for "the atlantic." richard, it's great to have you with us safe and sound. let me ask you about that. i had a sense as a political observer that the president was talking directly to the mullahs, to the people over there who really have the power, saying, look, maybe we can avoid a war, avoid a bombing campaign by us or israel if we can talk away from this weaponization of nuclear arms over there. how did you read it? what happened over there? >> i think he was talking to a lot of different audiences, and he was saying that i'm different than the previous administration. i'm not president bush. a lot of people around the world still remember the united states, even though there's been four years of a barack obama presidency, for the wars in iraq and the wars in afghanistan and military interventions and the drone policy, and he was trying to say we can work peacefully. we have to build on the peacemakers, and i think that is a message that will be received by p
chief foreign correspondent richard engel joins us now. you've seen it up close. you've seen men and women, women embedded with the troops. what difference do you think this will make? it makes a big difference in terms of career advancement? what about unit cohesion and all the other obstacles that critics are suggest sng. >> >> in some cases this is already happening. i remember a time in kandahar i was with a small unit of military police. there was a female lieutenant leading the group, and she was in the city of kandahar, which is a dangerous place. if are you walking around in kevlar carrying a rifle, walking through the streets of a dangerous city, are you in dom bat, especially in the kind of combat you have today when there aren't frontlines, and there are urban environments. she lived with other american soldiers. she lived in this same very dirty room that smelled of feet almost all the time. they got along very well. i can imagine if you multiply that throughout what they call theater of battle and you have women in these tiny frontline outposts across the country tha
overseas, richard engel. you notice -- a glaring omission from today's inaugural address. >> there was no talk of foreign policy at all. there was one reference to a decade of wars being over. well, not really. not if you're one of the tens of thousands of american troops still in afghanistan on patrol this morning, then the war isn't over. it's not over by a long shot. it's not over for their families. and then the other one is continuing to promote democracy around the world from asia to africa to the middle east. that's a very sort of generic policy. i have been listening to your coverage all morning and you have made several references to how foreign policy or foreign events or unpredicted events can change your plans and expectations, and if you look at the way the world is shaping up right now, it seems very likely that a major foreign event is going to dominate the president's agenda coming forward in this year. particularly in the middle east. and i've been speaking to some people very close to the obama administration, who played a big part in his foreign policy
the cliff and vote for christine o'donnell or richard murdoch or sharon engel when they had a chance to vote for republicans that would have beaten democratic candidates. if you look at the mistakes we made in the primary process simply because we've had this ideological litmus test over the past, again, two election cycle, we've made harry reid, we have, not democrats, we've made harry reid the majority leader again. we just got to start playing smafrter. >> a better candidate than sharon engel. his polls were terrible. joe, let me say something else. i worked for reagan, okay. reagan was a big tent guy. he was inclusive. in his administration we had moderate republicans, we had conservative republicans, we had supply siders like myself, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. can we go back to reagan's model, can we open up the party a little bit. you know what i'm thinking about particularly. this whole issue about immigration, latino, african-americans, young people, joe the whole party is missing a whole demonstrato graphic in this country? >> no doubt about it. one of my biggest criticisms ab
, and with ahmadinejad's speeches, i agree with richard he's not significant but the fact he's relaxing his speeches means khomeini had him do that. he is a puppet. >> i think you have to talk a little before you start bombing. thank you rich engel. we'll get back to you at some time and talk about your captivity. we had our worry beads out. >> thank you. >> as we should have. up next, yesterday was the president's big day, but didn't you get the idea that the vice president -- there he is -- you can't not laugh sometimes at joe biden, was thinking about inauguration four years from now. he worked that inaugural crowd like it was a ward in iowa and this was a caucus meeting. this is "hardball," the place for politics. with the spark cash card from capital one, sven gets great rewards for his small business! how does this thing work? oh, i like it!
